Remember when we first got wind of that incredibly sexy bike that Kaneda rides in the anime classic Akira? Yeah, the one from Medicom and Bandai that costs $450? Well, I want it just as bad now as I did when I first wrote about it. That being said, no bike like that is complete without a rider, and that is where badboy Shotaro Kaneda comes in.
Released as part of a collaboration between Medicom and Bandai called Project BM!, this is the second of a three piece release that includes the bike, Kaneda, and Tetsuo. Currently on sale through HLJ for about $211, he's certainly a pricey piece. But is he worth the money? Hit the jump to check out our unboxing video and decide for yourself.
